My grandson Eric was just diagnosed with T-Cell leukemia and also has tumors on his spine and near his eye. The only good news is that it is the kind that responds to treatment and the prognoses for remission is good. They will start him on chemo tomorrow but he has to stay isolated in the hospital for the next 30 days, due to wrecking his immune system while he is undergoing the treatments. Please put him in your prayers, the little guy is only 11.

An update on Eric, everything went well with his tests this evening...we found out that there are more tumors than they first thought on his spine and in his head ...we also found out that he does not have T cell leukemia but that he has AML leukemia...the treatment for this type is going to be harder than previously thought but the doctors are still optimistic...he is currently starting his first chemo treatment and will receive treatments for the next 29 days after which more scans will be done to determine whether or not he is in remission and can go home. Eric is in good hands and I have faith that even tho it will be a long road he will be just fine. Thanks for the kind responses and keep praying for him.

Today the oncologist came in to let us know that the tumor at the base of Eric’s spine is not shrinking fast enough and is impeding other bodily functions so they have now decided that he will start a 12 day course of radiation on top of the chemo in order to reduce the size fairly quickly. This is a much more serious condition and also lots harder on Eric, we also learned that the doctor is confident that he won’t be home for Christmas this year...please everyone continue to pray and send positive thoughts our way...thank you.
